My boy is now rubbing his posts! Down by the base of the ear, he has formed callous looking hard spots. What can I do to stop this? He must be doing this at night because I correct him for scratching all day!

Also, will the hair on these spots grow back?

Ay yi yi.... :(

I have found when they are scratching at the ears there is an infection or a sore. Sometimes the tape may have wrinkles in it irritating the ears. I'd take them down and repost them. Maybe contact the breeder or someone in your area that can help you. Half posts are also possible but they have to be right. Scratching and messing with the ears is means something is bothering the dog. The posts should be comfortable.

The only sores he has are the ones he has created. Even then, they aren't raw or taped over.

I guess I am out of options as I am too far from my breeder and don't know anyone else.
:confused:
